The Student Roadmap: 01 - Onboarding

  1. You will receive a temporary username and password from your instructor or lab supervisor.
  2. There are three essential steps in the onboarding process:
    1. The hardware sound settings are set up for the headset microphone (<5 minutes)
      1. Microphone Set-up guide for Microsoft Windows
      2. Microphone Set-up guide for Mac OSX
    2. NativeAccent 3 ONLY - Adobe Flash player plugin settings are set up for your favorite browser (<5 minutes
      1. Adobe Flash Player settings for Google Chrome
      2. Adobe Flash Player settings for Mozilla Firefox
      3. Adobe Flash Player settings for Safari
      4. The System Check ensures that your hardware and software are optimized for NativeAccent. (1 minute)
  3. Log in and complete the course enrollment process. (<5 minutes)
  4. Continue and take the initial assessment. 
  5. If you leave the assessment before completion, exit by clicking Save and Quit (not just close the browser page). This creates a bookmark and allows you to continue the completion of your assessment on your next login.
  6. Upon completion of the assessment, you will receive a skills scorecard and then be taken to the first lesson in your custom learning path.

Remember, there is a direct relationship between your active learning time practice and your results.  Carnegie Speech recommends 2 or 3 lessons per day for the best balance between practice time and improvement.  2 ½ hours one day a week will not be an effective use of your time.
